Speed Dating is a series where we get to know some of our favorite brand evangelists, whether they’re artists, designers, entrepreneurs, activists, or full-time parents! Today in the hot seat is Niké Ojekunle (@specsandblazers), stylist, artist, and activist.

Niké (@specsandblazers) is a stylist, artist, and activist. Her passion is for the homeless youth in her Los Angeles community. She works alongside the United Nations and volunteers weekly to feed and help the homeless.

“I was raised on a farm in Nigeria. No idea how my life turned out this way but I am incredibly grateful. I believe in hard work and resiliency. Can’t wait to see where this thing called life takes me.”
